The remote web server may be affected by an HTTP response splitting vulnerability.


According to its banner, the version of Tornado installed on the remote host is older than 2.2.1. As such, it may be affected by an HTTP response splitting vulnerability that may allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to forge responses from a trusted server.
